From the land of ASCII

And out of nowhere, 3D ASCII art:

         ,---------,               ,---------
       ,/|       ,/|            ,-'|      ,-|
     ,/  |     ,/  |         ,-'   |   ,-'  |
     ----+----'    |         ------+--'     |
    |    |    |    |        |      |  |     |
    |    |    |    |        |      |  |     |
    |    |    |    |        |      |  |     |
    |    *----+----|        |      *--+-----|
    |  ,/     |  ,/         |   ,-'   |   ,-'
    |,/       |,/           |,-'      |,-'
     ---------'              ---------'

Yeah, I know it's not that great, but I was staring at a whole bunch of text a bit ago and I started wondering if you could do half decent 3D with ASCII art. Consider it an unpolished proof-of-concept. Oh and if it's turning up as a pile of gobbledy-gook, you need to change your browsers monospace font to be an actual monospace font.

Check out the 3d fonts available for figlet. They're pretty nifty.
